Jordan Fuller capped a successful 2008 race season with two strong finishes at Mammoths Super G to place ninth in the United States Skiing Associations J4 Boys, Far West Division. In a speed event where racers reach speeds of 60 mph, size matters. Fuller, giving up as much as seven inches and 55 pounds, overcame a tough seed, running in the middle of the pack both days, laid down two nice runs to beat 86 of the 98 competitors in his group. These finishes provided him with the points necessary to take ninth. Fuller now qualifies for the Far West Championships March 27 through April 1at Northstar at Tahoe Mountain Resort.
